What started out as an outlet to document the journey of a single mother aspiring to earn her PhD, has turned into an insight into Maranda’s world and her passions.  Hopefully the blog encourages others to follow and advocate for their passions (especially single parents).

Although this is founded by  a single mother, ALL people can benefit from the topics covered in the blog!


Maranda Miller, a Kentucky native, resides in the Bronx, NY with her two children (ages 11 and 16). Maranda loves being outdoors, doing yoga and works in higher education specializing in academic support and STEM education. The family started a zero waste and plastic-free journey in December 2018 to ensure that Mother Earth is around for them and future generations. Maranda has been sharing her eco-friendly habits with the Bronx community through work at the La Finca Del Sur community garden, hosting low-waste workshops, and the creation of a Buy Nothing Group for her neighborhood.
